And gave gifts to men.”
[fn]

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:9 - (Now this, “He ascended”—what does it mean but that He also first[fn] descended into the lower parts of the earth?

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:14 - that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:15 - but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ—

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:16 - from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:17 - This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of[fn] the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:18 - having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart;

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:19 - who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:20 - But you have not so learned Christ,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:21 - if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus:

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:22 - that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:23 - and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:24 - and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEph 4:25 - Therefore, putting away lying, Let each one of you speak truth with his neighbor,”[fn] for we are members of one another.
